Highway 93 Revisited

Ectopic Wanderings

 

Born far from where

I was supposed to be,

 nearer to the end

I chased the beginning

throughout my life

—forever going home

 

(Red Lodge Montana: September, 2021)

 

 

18kt Memories

 

I’ll wear a Rolex

once I’m dead,

as accolades surround

 

The past what’s left

of what was right,

buried in the ground

 

Beneath my dreams

above my hope,

one wish to tell the tale

 

Of life now lived

with death in charge

—new gold among the shale

 

(Ouray Colorado: September, 2021)

 

 

As Darkness Fell…

 

I got in the door

when no one was looking

and stayed

as the world looked away

 

I crashed every feeling

 borrowing dreams

awake

in the afternoon’s mourning

 

(Ely Nevada: September, 2021)

 

 

 

 

 

Together Alone

 

Wisdom and love

in conflict they wed

to sleep through the darkness

—alone in the same bed

 

(Gardiner Montana: September, 2021)

 

 

Rent To Own

 

Once you move past

the imagery and symbols

 vision stays constant

—connection secure

 

(Thermopolis Wyoming: September, 2021)
